Watch this video right now. Well, only if you like to laugh out loud in your cubicle and potentially draw attention to your diminished workplace productivity. But hey, it’s the holidays, we’re all allowed a little goofing off. It’s a law! Besides how else are you going to get your Portlandia fix until the new season of Portlandia kicks off on Friday, Jan. 4th at 10/9c? So ask yourself, are you into that laughing thing? If so, pour yourself a glass of eggnog and watch this installment of Kumail Tours Portlandia. In this episode, our favorite menu lobsterate-er, Kumail Nanjiani, heads to the piercing parlor in the company of Portlandia’s finest elder statesman, Ellen Bloodworth, who stole scenes as an elderly library patron in season one and as the adult babysitter in season two. They both learn quite a bit about the art of inking and the male anatomy.

Watch as Kumail finds out exactly where you can stick a ring in Portlandia:

Watch as Portlandia goes into a food coma

On Friday we took a trip to a land never before seen: Winter in Portlandia. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein used their comedic platform to tackle a serious issue: Pigging out. It’s something that we can all relate to, because from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day it’s extremely likely that you will find yourself stuffed to the gills holding your stomach, loosening your belt, and moaning quietly to yourself while watching IFC from the comfort of your couch. While normally you would be embarrassed to be caught wearing your fat pants around town, during the holidays there’s no shame in wearing pants that are two sizes too big. In fact, you’ll be in good company, because everyone else is doing it too. Yep, the holidays are generally celebrated with serious bouts of overeating. But in Portlandia, they understand that food comas can happen at any time, so it’s wise to be prepared and plan ahead.

Watch this clip from Winter in Portlandia as they lay out a plan to avoid food comas and we will see you on Friday, Jan. 4 at 10/9c when the new season of Portlandia kicks off:

As you have probably heard, Portlandia is returning to IFC soon. And when we say soon, we mean TONIGHT. That’s right, Winter in Portlandia kicks off at 10:30/9:30c and we couldn’t be more excited about visiting the fair city of Portlandia during the non-religious holiday season. While we have to wait a few more weeks until season 3 of Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy show returns on Friday, January 4th at 10/9c, we had to share our excitement with the world. Turns out everyone else is pretty excited about the return of Portlandia, too! So we threw a party to celebrate.

On Monday, we took over the American Museum of Natural History after hours for a screening of a few episodes from the upcoming season (so good!) and then followed a bike lane, so we could party down with the blue whale at a reception in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life. Season 3 has a long list of guest stars, and some of them came to kick it with us at the shindig, including Jim Gaffigan. Plus some of Fred’s friends from Saturday Night Live stopped by, incluidng Bobby Moynihan, Kate McKinnon, Jay Pharoah and Andy Samberg, along with Lorne Michaels, who is executive producer of Saturday Night Live and Portlandia. Other guests included Questlove, Martin Short, Eugene Mirman and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth. It was quite the fete!

Watch the video now and then be sure to tune in tonight for Winter in Portlandia at 10:30/9:30c:
